Libraries for interacting with Lidar-Lite over I2C

This library will only work in a linux environment please install i2c-dev and i2c-tools

For recent Raspberry Pis or if you get an error such as

/src/lidar_lite.cpp:36:64: error: ‘i2c_smbus_write_byte_data’ was not declared in this scope

use this command to install i2c-dev:

apt-get install libi2c-dev

I found a great tutorial (using my library!) on this website: https://mobiusstripblog.wordpress.com/2016/12/26/first-blog-post/ Please check it out!
